The Buffalo Hunt

Gloss:
In the fall of 1890, Remington made his yearly sojourn West, this time to Montana and the Big Horn Mountains, to gather material and inspiration for his art. The Buffalo Hunt exemplifies his early style in its graphic realism and action. Painting a typical event in the life of the Indian, Remington turns it into one of tragedy and drama, reminding the viewer of the constant dangers of life in the West.
